In the heart of Rome, a large gallery offers silent areas with a clean-cut, intelligent design aimed at allowing for maximum efficacy in the expression of contemporary art. Two entirely restructured floors in a historic building are home to the exhibition space, the storeroom, the vault and the two offices of the new premises of the Mucciaccia Gallery. Situated in the heart of the capital, in Piazza Fontanella Borghese in the fascinating historical neighbourhood of Campo Marzio, the new gallery aims to pay the role of a grand agora, a meeting place for artists, collectors, experts and art lovers. The inviting white space is truly impressive, with ten large windows and 400 m2 of exhibition space, and was inaugurated in 2014 with an exhibition by Georges Mathieu, the founder of the Abstraction Lyrique movement. The gallery continues to offer excellent proposals, coordinated with the work Mucciaccia also carries out in the galleries of Cortina and Singapore.
The Roman architecture firm Riviello Architetti Associati successfully rose to the challenge of creating a bright setting in which art is able to exist and to breathe, a setting able to effectively enhance works created in different periods. For this reason, it was important for the lighting in the rooms and the choice of materials and colours to be subtle and discreet. Above all, since the gallery is open to the public all day, it was important for the flooring to guarantee excellent performance in terms of resistance to foot traffic. The choice of the ceramic material – Oliva cement-effect porcelain stoneware from the BLEND series by Fioranese, in the 60×60 size – that seamlessly covers the floor in a sophisticated shade of grey was both sufficiently resistant and suitably elegant, making an important contribution to creating a setting that proved an immediate success with the public.
